Emergency Grants for Students
The federal government has provided Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) resources for higher education institutions to help address the immediate and urgent impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our students and colleges. This new federal law provides the U.S. Department of Education funds to distribute to institutions of higher education in order to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the impacts of the coronavirus. To date, Congress has issued funds three times to institutions of higher education. These funds intend to support our students whose lives and education has been impacted by the pandemic.
